An updated version of the Iniki Runner, the I-5923 elevates iconic design elements from the 70’s runners culture with a fresh perspective on materials and technical improvements. Knitted mesh construction, suede overlays, a BOOST midsole and a gum rubber outsole. Features that only enhance the minimalistic lines and add more comfort to this long-time-teased silhouette. One more step in the lifeline of a classic.
So, what makes the Gazelle so great apart from its looks? It was the first adidas shoe to be made from suede (in this case kangaroo velour). At the time training shoes were made out of leather. The benefit of suede is that it is much lighter and suppler while still maintaining a good level of protection for the foot.
